This comprehensive manual is designed to give archaeologists the necessary background knowledge in environmental science required to excavate and analyse archaeological sites by rivers and on floodplains. Part I covers the techniques for studying alluvial environments, while Part II reviews the literature on the archaeology of alluvial environments and presents new information on alluviation and site formation in both the British Isles and Mediterranean. An important theme running through the book is the interaction between climatic and cultural forces and the transformation of riverine environments. Bringing together information on the evolution and exploitation of floodplain and river landscapes, it draws on examples from Britain, Europe, North America and Australasia. Alluvial Geoarchaeology will also interest physical geographers, geologists and environmental scientists. Contents Introduction and the example of the Nile; Part I. Principles: 1. Floodplain evolution; 2. Alluvial environments over time; 3. Interpreting floodplain sediments and soils; 4. Floodplain ecology, archaeobotany and archaeozoology; Part II. Application: 5. Artifacts from floodplains and rivers; 6. The rise and fall of forested floodplains in North West Europe; 7. Buried sites; 8. Managed floodplains; 9. The cultural archaeology of floodplains; 10. People, floodplains and environmental change; Appendices: 1. River flow and sediment transport; 2. Flood frequency analysis; 3. Documentary evidence and wetland perceptions.

14 Archaeological Theory and Scientific Practice: Topics in Contemporary Archaeology

Andrew Jones

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2001, 0-521-79060-3 / 9780521790604, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Is archaeology an art or a science? This question has been hotly debated over the last few decades with the rise of archaeological science. At the same time, archaeologists have seen a change in the intellectual character of their discipline, as many writers have adopted approaches influenced by social theory. The discipline now encompasses both archaeological scientists and archaeological theorists, and discussion regarding the status of archaeology remains polarised. Andrew Jones argues that we need to analyse the practice of archaeology. Through an analysis of archaeological practice, influenced by recent developments in the field of science studies, and with the aid of extensive case studies, he develops a new framework which allows the interpretative and methodological components of the discipline to work in tandem. His reassessment of the status and character of archaeology will be of interest to students, scholars and professionals. Contents 1. The archaeology of ‘two cultures? 2. Science as culture: creating interpretative networks; 3. Archaeology observed; 4. Materials, science and material culture: practice and narrative; 5. Material culture and materials science: a biography of things; 6. A biography of ceramics in Neolithic Orkney; 7. Making people and things in the Neolithic: pots, food and history; 8. Before and after science. Printed Pages: 222. 009442

32 Ethnicity and Class: Social Divisions in an Indian City

Gopa Sabharwal

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0-19-567830-3 / 9780195678307, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This is a detailed study of ethnicity. The volume analyses the origins of the concept, explores its relation to identity formation and social discourse on it through the exhaustive study of an Indian city. The book attempts to develop a general theory of ethnicity in urban India for Indian sociology. The main contention of the study is to suggest departure from the definition of ethnic group as caste or religion based and to widen the discussion to the actual constituents of an ethnic group both in a rural and urban setting. The work explores the existing literature on ethnicity and revisits the utility of this enterprise through a demonstration of the multiple character of ethnic groups, providing detailed data and its implication for urban India s social problems.

Folk Tales From Tibet, Capt. W.F. O'Connor
39 Folk Tales From Tibet

Capt. W.F. O'Connor

Pilgrims Books Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2004, 81-7769-202-X / 9788177692020, First Edition, Paperback, New, New, 5.5 x 8.5 Inches 
Folk Tales from Tibet is a collection of some of the most exquisite stories from Tibet recorded by Captain W F O'Connor. These tales were collected during his tenure as secretary and interpreter with the Lhasa Mission of 1904. They were compiled at a time when the western world know little or nothing about this mystical and exotic country. Hidden high up in the trans-Himalayan Plateau, Tibet separates two of the most ancient cultures, namely China and India. Both have played a big part in its development. The introduction of Buddhism from India changed the life styles and beliefs of the Tibetan people and helped them to develop into a highly conscious Buddhist society. Still its Bon Po origins and traditions are evident in the Buddhist way of life. This is clearly reflected in the psyche of the Tibetan Peoples. It is also perceptible whilst reading these stories. Carefully selected, these tales give a complete picture of the life and styles of the Tibetan peoples of the times. Like all folk tales they are very representative of the cultures that they attempt to portray. Even though most of the tales according to the author fine their origins in both India and China, they have been moulded by time to be representative of the Tibetan culture as well. With the addition of some Tibetan love songs and poetry this volume provides excellent reading for all. Printed Pages: 176. 002350
